Som's is a little gem of a restaurant. Arrived with 13 people and it was no problem for Som to create great meals for everyone. Went back a few times and never failed to provide great food. A definite place to have lunch or dinner in Thong Nai Pan. One you try you WILL go back for more!!

Pee Som has a great little restaurant and my wife and I have been coming here for many years. The fish dishes are fresh, well prepared and excellent. This is the place to come in TNP if you want good fish cooked Thai style. However there are some problems. I would not recommend that you visit Som's for typical Thai... More

Som welcomed us and we ordered some food all of which was excellent not to mention cheap , about £ 1 per dish. Having had such a great time I... More

Been there twice, and will go... More

After discovering this place we became regulars for our remaining days on Koh Samui. It is run by a girl who does the serving and a boy (friend?) who does the cooking. They seem to have a lot of regulars and you quickly feel like one if you make the effort. Their food is really good, a common favorite for... More

Went to this resturant pretty much by accident for the first time, but came back for every meal after the first time we ate there. Located on a small street connecting the main street of thong nai pan yai to the beach, just before the bakery. Ate mainly Thai food which was really tasty, and very cheap, especially in comparison... More
